Private & stunning ranch property with expansive views of the Rocky Mountains & over 2 km of frontage on the Kootenay River. The land is comprised of 2 legal parcels with a mix of flat open pasture, treed hillside & ecologically rich wetland. Running creek (with water licences).
J.D. Ranch. A gorgeous riverfront acreage with over 2 kilometres of frontage on the Kootenay River. This very scenic property is privately located at the end of River Road and set well back from the highway creating a pristine nature sanctuary.
There are 2 legal titles with a total of 238 acres of land. The land is comprised of approximately 90 acres of cleared land that serves as great summer and late summer pasture, 75 acres of mixed forest/seasonal wetland along the river and approximately 65 acres of forested hill side and plateau offering some amazing building sites. Views of the Rocky Mountains are available all over the land.
This is a true wildlife sanctuary. On my first visit I watched a large herd of elk graze the riverside pasture. Mapping shows the land borders on some Crown land to the west.
The land has an irrigation and domestic water license on Gustavus Creek which flows into the property and ends in a pond near the old farmhouse site. There are a few historic buildings here, but only one holds any use/value—a hay shed. Property could be used as small farm/ranch, recreational pursuits or year-round living.

Ta Ta Creek is a quaint community hamlet in southeastern British Columbia consisting of a few ranch properties, private residences and the Ta Ta Creek General Store.
The nearest town is Kimberley (population 6,500), about a 15-minute drive away. There you will find all the amenities needed: professional services, stores, indoor recreation facilities, great restaurants and cafes, golf courses and the ski hill and Nordic centre. The community was founded on its mining history. Now the economy is primarily tourism based.
Cranbrook is approximately a 20-minute drive south and is larger than Kimberley, with a population of approximately 25,000 but servicing much larger population. Cranbrook offers shopping and services on a larger scale as well as being the location of the East Kootenay Regional Hospital and airport with daily flights to Calgary and Vancouver with seasonal International flight options. Fairmont Hot Springs is about 45 minutes north of Ta Ta Creek, Radium Hot Springs about an hour.
On the broader scale, Ta Ta Creek is located in the southeast Kootenay district, in the broad Kootenay River valley between the Purcell and Rocky Mountain ranges. It is about an hour north of the United States and the borders of Montana, Idaho and Washington. The area is recognized as the ‘warmer side of the Rockies’ with a nice dry climate and is noted as having the most sunshine hours in all of BC. Ta Ta Creek is 1,000 ft lower than Kimberley and has an earlier spring and a later, milder winter.
This private riverfront ‘ranch sanctuary’ will surely keep you active without having to step foot off its boundaries. There is great hunting possible on the property, the Kootenay River offers great rafting and kayaking and there is excellent pasture land and hillside for horses, or motorized recreation.
Branching out from the immediate area, the East Kootenay region is unique in the number of recreational activities that can be enjoyed year-round. Kimberley Alpine Ski Resort with over 1,800 acres of terrain, 80 named runs and glades, plenty of sunshine and dry snow is one of BC’s finest. The Kimberley Nordic Club trail network consists of a multiple variety of cross-country tracks including a trail illuminated for night skiing. The Kimberley Nature Park is one of the largest municipal parks in Canada, offering 800 ha/1,800 acres of parkland filled with hiking, biking, Nordic/cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails. The Columbia Valley boasts additional ski destinations such as Fairmont Hot Springs. Panorama Resort and Fernie is a little further away (approx. 1.5 hours).
